Embarc Collective helps Tampa Bay’s startup talent build bold, scalable, thriving companies. Our staff of executive advisors and function-specific experts deliver individualized support to startups inside of Embarc Collective’s state-of-the-art 32,000 square foot collaboration facility (space to open in late 2019).
Embarc Collective takes no equity in the companies that it supports—instead, companies pay a highly subsidized monthly fee to access the support and space of Embarc Collective.
We are not a co-working space, accelerator or incubator. We are a new kind of support model, one where your company's experience at Embarc Collective is customized around your priorities to help your growth.
